US is the country battling hardest against the Corona Virus. However, Corona Virus parties are being organised in Washington. Here non-infected guests are socialising with those who have tested positive for the virus. It is being done ostensibly in the hope of speeding up the process of catching and overcoming it.
“We’ve been getting reports of “coronavirus parties” where uninfected people are mingling with COVID-19 positive individuals intentionally to try to contract the virus. Bad idea!” said a tweet from Washington’s health department on Wednesday. “This is dangerous and puts people at risk for hospitalization or even death.”
John Wiesman, Washington state’s secretary of health, said in a statement: “It is unknown if people who recover from Covid-19 have long-term protection. There is still a lot we don’t know about this virus, including any long-term health issues which may occur after infection.”
“This kind of unnecessary behavior may create a preventable uptick in cases which further slows our state’s ability to gradually re-open.” ?
Meghan DeBolt, the director of Walla Walla’s department of community health said that there were reports of parties attended by people infected with the virus, but said she not have evidence.
